WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Deep purplish red with a generous, complex nose with notes of plum, violet and tame peppery spice. Lively yet full-bodied on the palate with lovely flavours of black fruit and spices.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Christophe Coquard comes from a long line of vine growers in Beaujolais. Christophe learned viticulture and winemaking from his Grandfather and father toiling among the vines and vinifying Gamay Beaujolais in the family winery. After working for three years in the wine import and distribution sector in London, Christophe spent time working for three renowned wineries in California, New Zealand Villa and South Africa. Once back in the Beaujolais, he developed his skills and expanded his network of contacts, working for two négociant houses and in 2004 Christophe decided to ‘return home’ properly, to the family estate, and to channel his energies into livening up the Beaujolais wine scene. Whilst carrying on the family tradition in Beaujolais, Christophe has also developed a micro-negociant business offering intriguing parcels from the Languedoc in bottles and in kegs.
